Overview

About the property

Condo, King Bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Ask about a Veteran discount! I served 7 years in the Unites States Navy. I love when I hear from a fellow Veteran.

For 50+ five star reviews check out our sister condo at Sapphire Beach - vrbo# 207759.

Welcome to Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina. These are individually owned condos. And while the name says "resort" we lack most all the amenities that you would find at a typical resort. For example, there is not a restaurant on site, no spa, no tennis, no cabana boy....but you do get to be in a condo that is closest to the beach in all of St Thomas. You are literally step to the beach with an awesome unobstructed view and the sunrise over St John is unbelievable. There is a beach bar on site now, it is on the other side of the complex. There is a pool, and while the pool is clean and in a wonderful location, the attached bar/restaurant is no longer active and was boarded up a few years back.

For more pics and a travel guide on Sapphire Beach and Beachtacular! You can access my web site by searching "Beachtacular" or "Rent Sapphire Beach" on any major search engine. Most all questions you may have can be answered in the travel/vacation guide that is published on my web site. VRBO now hides links (and emails) but the web site is rent sapphire beach, no spaces and with the com. The travel/vacation guide is 10 pages of very useful information that is a must read for those that are new to the US Virgin Islands and Sapphire Beach.

Building E has wonderful views of the sunrise; you will love waking up each morning to a beachtacular sunrise whether in bed, or on the patio, simply amazing!

This beach front one bedroom condo is on the ground floor at Sapphire Beach. The patio steps onto the beach at the quiet end of the resort (bring your water shoes if you want to snorkel in front of condo, as it is rocky at the waters edge). Our ground floor building E beach front suite offers a king bed. The suite includes a bedroom area, sitting area with cable and TV, kitchen with appliances, tile bathroom with shower and double sinks. The private patio looks out to beautiful St. John. Beautiful! Listen to the gentle waves in the background as you dine on your patio or relax in your comfortable accommodations.

Wake up and look out your door and see the beautiful sunrise, white sandy beach and blue water. Enjoy the wonderful snorkeling just steps from your door. The location is great for honeymoons, romantic getaways, fun in the sun, and pure relaxation. Step right out to the quiet beach or take a very short walk to the pool or marina - slip rentals and day trips are available. Red Hook and the ferry to St. John are just minutes away. Red Hook and St. John have great dining opportunities and plenty of nightly dancing and fun...

Sapphire Beach is the best beach on St. Thomas - great snorkeling!!

Contact us for availability. We would love to have you!

Why Bernard J Arroyo chose East End

It is right on the beach! This truly is one of the best locations in St Thomas if you desire to be directly on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a review a guest left (it is posted on another vacation rental site/AirBNB).



“Bernard was an excellent host, and his condo is beautiful. Overall, we had a great stay. Bernard took the time to answer all of my questions over the phone before our trip, and helpfully provided us the names and locations nearby grocery stores, restaurants, and bars. The condo is right on the beach, with an amazing view of St. John across the water - you can't ask for much more than that. Waking up to the sound of the waves was blissful. We found the best place to go in the water is on the northern side of Sapphire Bay, about a 3-minute walk from the condo along the beach, where the water is much clearer and the sand is more fine. The resort had a nice pool area, and felt very safe. Most of the guests appeared to be couples in their 30s and 40s, along with a few families with young kids. The resort is conveniently located about a 2-minute drive from Red Hook, with quick access to the ferry to St. John (which is a must-see), and some pretty cool bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying at this condo.”

This condo was perfect for our vacation. The views and location were great. Bernard had everything that we needed in the condo. All the information he provided for us before the trip made the trip very easy and enjoyable. We will definitely book this condo again soon!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, spacious, and well-stocked room. The porch and view are amazing! We enjoyed snorkeling, swimming, and kayaking from the resort. Snorkeling is not to be missed-we saw lots of cool fish and coral. We also snorkeled in St. John but found it to be just as good from the condo (however you can see sea turtles from Maho bay in St. John :). Walking to town is doable in the day if you are very careful (not for small children) but we usually just caught the Safari bus for $1 to get to Red Hook and even rode it downtown one day for $2. My only disappointment is some of the resort overall is rundown-tennis courts overgrown and some areas in need repair. However I was looking at the ocean most of the time so easily to overlook that. We took a dinner sail right from the marina next door which was also convenient.

excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Bernard great to work with, very informative.

Excellent location

Good value.

$8 each way to go 1 mile to red hook is a rip off but thats not the condo's fault.

Food in St. Thomas is very expensive
